The Innovations Conference, held March 13 at NYU Kimmel Center, was a resounding success, with nearly 200 attendees, 19 posters, 4 panels based on the innovative programs, a Keynote speech by Jim Gavin, President & CEO of Community Care Behavioral Health Organization and a Technology Panel highlighting cutting-edge solutions that enable technology-assisted care.

The Conference was about showcasing the innovative approaches developed by community-based providers in order to improve services for their consumers and that have the potential to change the current delivery of care models in NYC.


By taking the assembled innovative programs and services showcased and with a proper framework for evaluation and data collection we can better determine outcomes, costs and potential savings, and we can turn these innovative initiatives into scalable programs and services across CBC’s Network.


This Innovations Conference was about the need to document, evaluate and disseminate widely these emerging practices that have an evidence for effectiveness and can thus be the drivers of innovations in practice and service delivery, moving the needle on policy wherever needed and starting to demonstrate the need for payment reform that matches work that achieves lasting outcomes.


CBC has a number of activities occurring in the coming months, including an Emerging Technology Trends white paper, Technology breakfast seminars, Learning Collaboratives, Program Evaluations and Call-for-Articles, and several offerings from the CBC Training Institute. Keep an eye on your email for these exciting developments.
